West Bank/Gaza – Policy Formulation and Legislative Drafting

The Palestinian Executive Authority (PEA), established in May 1994 under the Oslo I Peace Accord between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization, was charged with administering the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. The fledgling PEA had many needs, including the capacity to draft legislation and formulate policies that complied with legal norms and quality standards, and that incorporated the input of citizens and other interested parties. To assist in building this capacity, Checchi’s project office in Gaza worked with the Palestinian Ministries of Justice and Planning and International Cooperation to develop internal systems and trained Ministry of Justice staff in legislative drafting techniques.
